Plans have been finalised for the upcoming series of Friday evening lessons at Glenleary. The 7pm lesson each evening will focus on flatwork with the 8pm and 9pm sessions concentrating on jumping. Mary Finneran will teach all the classes. Please book immediately with Erica on 083 370 9333 if you wish to participate. Parking isContinue reading “Details confirmed for Friday’s lessons”
A series of lessons with instructor Mary Finneran will begin on Friday 16 September. Originally planned as jumping lessons, they will also accommodate those who prefer to stick to flatwork. We will discuss the exact format of the lessons at our club meeting next week. Options include the first group each evening doing flatwork withContinue reading “Fridays at Glenleary beginning on 16 September”
Two rides on Friday evening were cleverly collapsed into one as half the booked horses and riders fell by the wayside with cast shoes and sundry other complaints. But, as always, the five candidates who turned out for Jackie’s flatwork lesson at Harley’s finished the session with broad smiles on their faces and the unbeatable knowledgeContinue reading “Tough but rewarding tutelage in Trentagh”
The second of Jackie McPherson’s summer series of three flatwork lessons takes place this Friday at Harleys in Trentagh. Book by Wednesday with Sharon on 086 338 9166.
If you’re the kind of rider who makes last minute decisions about what activity to pursue each weekend, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what’s on offer over the coming days. There’s nothing like waking up on a Saturday morning with aching muscles and limbs after an intensive session with Jackie McPherson at our Friday eveningContinue reading “Weekend menu with plenty of variety”

In place of formation riding, Jackie McPherson will deliver another of her unmissableContinue reading “Flatwork lesson this Friday with Jackie McPherson”
Suzanne has delivered a very upbeat report on Friday night’s lessons with Mary Devine and she’s also captured everything really well in pictures: The lessons with Mary Devine went well. Audrey and I were the only two in the first lesson as there were cancellations from Orla and Laura. We had a brilliant lesson andContinue reading “Flatwork in Glenswilly a great success”
Not surprisingly, Mick and Suzanne’s land at Glenswilly has been saturated by the ongoing rain. Cross country training on open ground is out of the question so we’re switching to Plan B. Mary Devine will give flatwork instruction in Carrolls’ arena. Please book with Mick on 086 828 2280, if you plan to attend.
If you plan to attend the regional training day on Sunday 19 June at Cloncaw Equestrian Centre in Glaslough, you must book with Orla by Friday! Regional Training Day
This year sees the introduction of a very welcome second regional training day in the Western region’s calendar. Flowerhill is a wonderful venue for the usual training day but it’s too far to travel for the majority of the Donegal clubs’ members. Cloncaw Equestrian Centre in Glaslough is a much handier alternative and will hopefullyContinue reading “Details of Regional Training Day, Cloncaw EC, Sunday 19 June”
